Man oh Man!!! Has anybody been there lately. I grew up in Langley and used to fish there all the time. went there this weekend and well shit there was hardly any water. I dont get it we used to alway go there. i even went in may and the levels were fine. Anybody else been, or have some answers or ideas???? I mean it is not the best lake but ok to kill a few hours close to home and you usually get something even if its just a Bud can
fi-do

How shallow was it? Can you see the bottom of the lake?

Sorry fishing Brothers, but the water has dropped two meters. I read with sad eyes in a paper. I completely forget which one though. It was within the last three days that I read it. The water drained by "accident" when workers laid in new ground pipes for some project. Don't know if it was the one your talking about in the above posting, but I have reasons to believe so. This lake was a fun lake to fish. I cast my first fly there. I also caught my first bluegill there. Don't know why there any bluegill in there though. That lake was a fun one to kick around in in a float tube though. Its a good lake to take kids to when there young to get em into fishing.
But yes, the water level has dropped, and to the dismay of many reveald a mass of litter. So many beer cans and bike frames that were the result of grad-parties past. I suggest that the people that live out in Langley go to the Municipality about it. But yes, it has drained because of "mis-calculations".

Any ways, enough of depressing stuff. I'm out.
Tight lines!

theres bluegill in there? i saw stickleback, overgrown goldfish and the carp......they must have been transplanted like people do with bass.

I used to fish there all the time as a kid. Caught some descent trout with just about every known method possible. It was well stocked two or three times a year, but now i don't think it can even sustain any trout anymore. It has gotten progresivly more shallow every year and the last time I went, it was full of those little sunfish things, nothing else.

your right truecast...the fish were quite`easy to catch. everytime i look at latimer lake it seems so natural to have bass and panfish as the only species in there. a `shallow warm lake that favors these fish. just a thought cause it would provide the kids with good fishing. i also noticed people exceeding their possesion limit of trout everytime they stock it.

I always thought that as well.It was more tailored for some sort of bass species.But anyhow, it's no place for an experienced angler,but a sure thing for some-one with little kids whose just looking for a day out.
